Baby brain development

When the babies are born, just as the synaptic connection are not complete, so too the myelin sheath does not yet cover all of the nerves in the nervous system, the process of producing synaptic connection, pruning away those that are not being use, and myelinating the connecting that are left will continue throughout childhood and adolescence.

Each neuron may be connected to as many as 15000, other neurons making very complex neural pathways, sometimes referred to as the brain’s wiring. Forming and reinforcing these synapse, or connections, is the major task of infant brain development.

During the first three years, child's brain triples in weight and establishes about 1,000 trillion nerve connections.

The moments of soothing, playfulness, touching and tickling, hugging and holding that happen between mother and baby, stimulate the brain and build connections that are the foundations of intelligence being a decent and wonderful human being.
